What is 3d printer & how it works ?

Post by 3dtech » Sat Jul 29, 2017 2:46 pm

3D Printer is a machine allowing the creation of a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model, typically by laying down many thin layers of a material in succession. 3D Printing, also known as additive manufacturing (AM), refers to processes used to synthesize a three-dimensional object in which successive layers of material are formed under computer control to create an object. 3D Printing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. 3d printer how it works


3D printers are machines that can produce an object made of plastic (or metal) using an additive process. Additive processes are where you build up an object using raw materials like powder, liquid, or filament. The opposite of this is a subtractive process, such as CNC milling machines, in which you insert a block of material that is larger than your final object, and it gets cut away to leave only the object that you want.

3D printers come in many forms, Dylan Lawson Brown describes fused deposition modelling (FDM), which push out molten plastic to build up a model layer by layer.

However, there are other types of 3D printers such as Stereolithography process (SLA), laser-sintering systems (SLS), which uses lasers to melt together plastic or metal powder (DMLS), layer by layer.

Applications of 3D printing range from architecture, interior designing to aerospace and defence sector. 3d printing in architecture industry
